    In an organization/a company, the policies & procedures of the Human Resources Management should be in compliance with the prevailing Myanmar Labour Laws.  In order to do that, Top HR Solutions holds a session every Saturday from 01:00 pm to 05:00 pm.

To do overtime on a normal working day, on a weekly day off (Sunday) and on a public holiday, what is the difference?


Overtime

Overtime means, work is performed more than eight hours a day.  The overtime is calculated as follows - double the hourly wage/salary 

Salary x 12            x double

52 weeks x 44/48 hours


To do overtime on a weekly day off (Sunday)

Work is performed on a weekly day off, Sunday, as required by the company’s/organization’s needs. If so, it is not “overtime” and a day off should be given instead of “overtime pay”.  This day off should be given within three days or any one day after three days (when work has been performed).  In other words, a day off is replaced for having performed work on a Sunday.


To do overtime on a public holiday

Work is performed on a public holiday, as required by the company’s/organization’s needs.  Payment should then be – double the one day’s salary; even though work is performed for some hours only. A day off cannot be replaced in this case. In other words, a public holiday is meant for that particular day only.


In accordance with the Myanmar Labour Laws, which types of leaves cannot be deducted from the wage/salary?


Casual leave

Due to unavoidable circumstances, a prior permission cannot be made; as such this leave can be permitted.  Six days is fixed for 12 months/a year and only three days at a stretch is permitted for one time.


Earned leave

Upon completion of 12 months at a stretch, a ten-day earned leave is entitled.  Prior permission should be made.  12 months at a stretch is completed but if work is performed less than 20 days in a month, one day’s earned leave is cut from each month.


Medical leave

Upon completion of six months, a 30-day medical leave is entitled.  A doctor’s recommendation letter is to be submitted.  Less than six months, leave without pay can be permitted.


Maternity leave

Upon completion of six months only, the maternity leave is entitled.  A total of 14 weeks: six weeks prior to giving birth and eight weeks after giving birth.   



In accordance with the Social Security Board Laws, if a paid up member expires at the workplace, what are the benefits for the surviving spouse/family member?


The paid up member/insured person’s average salary, 4 months prior to his expiry, and based on the period the contribution was made is entitled.  According to the wish of the person, the benefits will be given as follows to his surviving spouse/family member either in instalments or in a bulk:


For example, if a public holiday falls on a Wednesday, leave is not permitted neither on a Tuesday nor on a Thursday. 


The policies and procedures of the Human Resources Management should be in compliance with the prevailing Myanmar Labour Laws.  For this purpose, Top HR Solutions holds a session every Saturday from 01:00 pm to 05:00 pm.
